, tell us to pull the plug on you. it sounds awful but that's the message getting out to a lot of people. >> certainly, they have taken parts of the plan and distorted some of them. some of them are legitimate concerns that some seniors have that some health care procedures may not be available to them late in life. but the one that they have really distorted is one that revolves around hospice care, and what basically that is is studies have shown if seniors write down a much more detailed -- not just a living will but real directives about what kind of care that they want, that then their wishes will be complied with and many times what they have found in states that do this a lot better than it's done nationally is that many times people don't want to die in an icu unit. they want to die at home with their family, and clearly -- >> i'm with you on that. fair enough. most people would be smart to make these declarations clear so their relatives don't have to make the decisions like in the schiavo case where the whole country got involved. senators got involved. members of congress were

be insane. if president obama could articulate how exactly the investment would help all of us, i believe he might succeed in his quest to make health care more sensible. americans are a generous people, we give more money to the poor than any other country on earth. if you harm the economy of the nation, you are hurting more people and you are helping. that is what the president doesn't understand. it is a fact, since he has been in office, we have spent more money than at any other time in history and now he wants another trillion dollar entitlement. in the long run, he says it will be cost efficient but the congressional budget office says baloney. americans are skeptical. just 49% of americans hold a favorable view of the democratic party which is down from 62% last winter. while government spending least people very concerned. this does not improve the health care system but it can be done in a smart way which strips federal oversight on insurance companies. the left-wing doesn't want to hear that because they want income redistribution. government run health care is a way to do that. c
